For the 88 Constellations in 23 Hours Challenge, Celsys will call on artists to post their illustrations inspired by each of the 88 constellations on Twitter using the event hashtags, and challenge participants to complete all 88 constellations during the 23-hour event. The illustrations submitted during the event will be posted on a special event page where visitors will be able to see the illustrations submitted by creators from around the world fill the night sky map.
Several of the best entries will be selected by Celsys to be incorporated into the launch screen of a special edition of the illustration, manga, and animation app, Clip Studio Paint. This presents a unique opportunity for Clip Studio Paint users to get a one-of-a-kind version of the app that displays their own artworks at startup. The commemorative app will be available to download from the event page after the challenge is over.
